I can't remember it at all, although I only really know Newcastle in any great depth from the late 80s.
I can remember that there was a TG Allan inside the Monument Mall, in the basement when it was proper floor and not just a massive jumble sale - I mean TK Maxx. It didn't seem to last long.
We had a TG Allan in Hexham for many many years it was a brilliant shop, I always remember there was a raised section at the back where children's books and a small selection of toys were. It is now one of our many charity shops.
